3. A Request from our Finance Director: We Need Your Help! On January 24, the League of Women Voters of the Charlottesville Area will begin its annual exercise in supporting our work -- the Finance Drive. Before the envelope-stuffing party, we need the help of all members to put on your thinking caps, and see if you can provide us with any name(s) of such friends who might be approachable through our finance letter. There are many folks in the community who support the mission of encouraging informed, active participation of citizens in government, working to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influencing public policy through education and advocacy. We need to contact them via our finance drive letter in the hope that they will support our efforts with a donation to either the Education Fund or the Operating Fund. So as we give thanks for many blessings in our lives in the next few weeks, I ask you to please send your suggestions via email to the League office firstname.lastname@example.org (or phone 970-1707) or to me at Frances Schutz email@example.com (or phone 979-5413). Timing is everything, so the sooner the better-- a suggestion would be to think and act before mid-December , however, if a lightning bolt of inspiration hits after that, don't let the idea of tardiness stop you from getting in touch. THANK YOU! Frances Schutz, 2014-15 LWV CVA Finance Chair.
